in this instance my money is on the in -flight loss of the empennage as a result of aerodynamic forces imposed upon it beyond its structural limititations.
I just would not have expected the remainder of the airframe to survive anything like to the extent it has. It appears borderline surviveable, and the fuselage (what is visible) still looks circular.
